The following appeared in a newspaper article about law firms in the city of Megalopolis.
"In Megalopolis, the number of law school graduates who went to work for large, corporate firms declined by 15 percent over the last three years(1), whereas an increasing number of graduates took jobs at small, general practice firms. Even though large firms usually offer much higher salaries, law school graduates are choosing to work for the smaller firms most likely because they experience greater job satisfaction at smaller firms. In a survey of first-year students at a leading law school, most agreed with the statement that earning a high salary was less important to them than job satisfaction(2,3). This finding suggests that the large, corporate firms of Megalopolis will need to offer graduates more benefits and incentives and reduce the number of hours they must work.(4,5)"
(1)The 15% decline that the author cites is not necessarily due to the vocational preferences of new law-school graduates. Perhaps during the last three years Megalopolis' large firms have had fewer and fewer job openings for these graduates.
(2)The vocational goals of first-year law students cited in the survey do not necessarily reflect those of graduating students.
(3)The goals of students at one law school do not necessarily reflect those of the overall pool of graduates that might seek employment with Megalopolis law firms.
(4)The author falsely equates the proposed tangible incentives with job satisfaction.
(5)Small firms have many other advantages that large ones do not have, thus the large, corporate firms need to adopt other policies to attract more graduates.
